estate gas dryer
« on: August 20, 2013, 11:39:17 AM »
I have a no thrills Estate gas dryer the flame will stay on for 30 seconds then drops off. I cleaned the whole entire dryer inside and out. Pulled off vent tube, same problem. The glow plug will just recycle turning on and off without turning on the flame. I replaced the coils, and that didn't help. Tested all the sensors for continuity, and they tested all good. This dryer doesn't have a circut board just a timer switch. Help!

I thought the flame sensor all you needed to do is test for continuity. Even if you have continuity it can fail to hold a flame?

Don't ask me why but it worked ,I am guessing it would open and close again drawing current away from the coil shutting the gas off.
